The World Alliance for Low Carbon Cities (WALCC) and the Tsinghua University Shenzhen Graduate School hosted a seminar on green building materials and low-carbon technology on August 11th at the Graduate School in Shenzhen, China. The seminar’s range of speakers, including experts, professions, and government representatives in the construction and urban development industries, promoted the integration of low-carbon practices, materials, and technologies in construction, road work, and waste resource efficiency.

As the seminar’s main partner, the Shenzhen KZD Traffic Construction Materials Company brought a focus on the development of environmentally sustainable traffic infrastructure, exploring the application of new materials and technologies in road work. This material-focused perspective was also represented in a number of other speeches delivered by experts in the fields of municipal design, building materials, the design of urban roads and bridges. KZD’s new asphalt technologies support sustainability in road construction by simplifying the production of asphalt by producing a ready-to-use product which eliminates the need for asphalt mixing and heating equipment or personnel.
